The Social Crossroads of Chapel Hill

Whether you live in Chapel Hill, are just visiting or are here to connect to your college roots, Top of the Hill – or TOPO as we have come to be known – is a destination spot. Our menu is loaded with locally-sourced ingredients, our acclaimed beer collection is brewed right on site, and our outdoor deck boasts a panoramic view of downtown. 

Rounding out the offerings are our event spaces that can host any occasion you can dream up. And, oh yeah, did we mention we now make our own spirits? That's right. It's all here at the top. Come join us. 

The Brewery

Top of the Hill was one of North Carolina's first microbreweries. With over 100 awards, our beers are some of the most celebrated in the country. See what's on tap today.
